Some really, really big news.... times 5!

I mentioned in a previous post that I got caught up with my first two grandbabies' baby quilts, which is awesome and makes me feel so very good. But then, we got this photo over GroupMe...

Shoes: Daddy's, Mommy's, Big Brother's, and Baby-To-Be

Woohoo! Our daughter and her husband are expecting their second child!

And then, our youngest son and his wife told us that they are expecting. Yay!!!! We were beside ourselves with the excitement.

You're going to need to sit down somewhere in this story. Probably now.

Our other daughter came over a few weeks after that, and as we were holding her little baby, we happened to read a little sign hidden under her bibdana.

Yep. She is going to be a big sister... only 13 months older than her little brother or sister!

Seriously. If you haven't found a seat yet, find one. It just keeps getting better. Just when we thought we couldn't contain any more excitement, our oldest son and his wife gave us the amazing news that they are expecting.... twins!!!!

So, if you're keeping track, that means ALL FOUR of our kids are expecting babies!  All five babies will be born within about three months of each other! Can you believe that? It makes me smile so often throughout the day. Really, really smile. I love thinking about those babies joining our other two grandbabies. Oh how we love our grandkids around here! They are the light of our life. There is no other way to say it. We are so thrilled! And the mommies are all darling and so ready for these babies. I love to think about the five little cousins growing up together. Fun times ahead!

I realize that there are a plethora of exclamation points in this post, but can you blame me?

And now, since I've got five more grandbabies coming, and they'll be in dire need of a baby quilt, I've got to get crackalacking on some quilts. I've started working on them for the first two babies (expected in January and February), who we know are girls. Remember in a post a few weeks ago, I mentioned that I had decided on a simple quilt idea for the two grandbabies we are lucky enough to have so far (click here to see how I made the jelly roll jam quilts). And now you can understand why the quilt pattern needs to be simple. :) I'll be posting the finishing instructions for the quilts (binding and label) in my next post, so check back for that.

Til then, you'll find me smiling....
